Phuket, ThailandMarch 9, 2015 in Thailand
We sailed into Phuket on a very hot morning. We had been in ports for the past 4 days, did not have a specific excursion planned and did not feel very adventuresome. Occasionally there is a very strong taxi union in a particular area so the ship is unable to run a shuttle into town (in this case, town was about 8 miles away). The taxi drivers/hawkers were standing at the exit to the port yelling and trying to get everyone’s attention. They were also quoting very high prices and very different prices to various people. The locals had set up a very nice market at the port so we called it our last shopping day in southeast Asia and had a little relaxing time.
The sail away was particularly beautiful - late afternoon sunshine with myriad mystical islands all around us.
I have added some photos from past days just for fun!
The first photo is all 4 of us in Singapore.
The second photo is a mealtime that just got messy!
The third photo is one of a thousand details that we have seen walking down the wonderful streets of southeast Asia.Read more
